Proximities 3: The sky has no limit / El cielo no tiene límite

Alice Yard / documenta fifteen
Presented in collaboration with the Third Horizon Film Festival

Still from Celaje (Cloudscape), by Sofía Gallisá Muriente


From 12 to 21 September, Alice Yard and the Third Horizon Film Festival will present an installation of three short films/videos at the documenta fifteen venue WH22, screening in a continuous loop from 10 am to 8 pm daily. These works, by filmmakers with roots in the Caribbean region (Trinidad and Tobago, Puerto Rico, French Guiana), investigate ideas about territory and belonging, family and self-definition, and the ongoing legacies of colonialism — all making use of found or repurposed footage.

This is the third in the Proximities series of video works presented by Alice Yard, exploring relationships within the Caribbean region, following previous editions in 2010 and 2015.

Update: Proximities 3 will be reinstalled at WH22 for the final weekend of documenta fifteen, 24 and 25 September
